The art of parenting

Sought a son

to achieve high

over and beyond

his age and height


hauling him away

forcing, from friends

the mother with hopes

cast him amidst wolves


encouraging greatness

discouraging listlessness

she carved a scaredy-cat

out of a sheer underdog.

    1. It is! And it’s tough, too. Most parents I’ve seen force their children into a life they couldn’t themselves achieve. The irony, though, is that parents don’t mean harm at all—they believe they’re helping when, in fact, they’re not.
